Horace Trumbauer Walking Tour
Horace Trumbauer was Philadelphia’s most prolific architect, whose work can be found across the United States. He is best known, perhaps, for his New York and Newport Gilded Age mansions. In Philadelphia, however, his firm also designed a large number of institutional buildings as well as private residences. Please join the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, Philadelphia and Jim Mundy, Director of Education and Programming for the Union League of Philadelphia, for a walking tour that explores Trumbauer-designed buildings that have housed Philadelphia’s premier cultural and social institutions over the past century.
The tour will begin at the Union League of Philadelphia, where we will learn about the exterior and interior spaces of this landmark institution. Our tour will then proceed through Center City to include such buildings as the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, the Racquet Club, the original Ritz Carlton hotel, the St. James apartment house, the Widener Building, the YMCA, the Free Library of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and then through the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood to see examples of Trumbauer’s domestic architecture. The tour will end at Rittenhouse Square.
Jim Mundy is the Director of Education and Programming for the Foundations of the Union League of Philadelphia. He is an alumnus of The Attingham Summer School for the Study of British Houses and Collections and is presently the President of The Woodlands Cemetery Company and the Woodlands Trust for Historic Preservation. Jim has also given architecture tours for the Preservation Alliance.
The Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) is the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the practice and appreciation of the classical tradition in architecture and the allied arts. We fulfill this mission through education, publications, awards, and advocacy, partnering with diverse organizations throughout the region.

Drexel Design Research Symposium 2018: Design and Change
URBN Center ANNEX at 3401 Filbert Street.
Friday October 12, 2018
How does design research create change in health, technology, and the environment? What are the leading-edge models of thought around creating change through design? Today, artists and designers are pursuing work and creative expression that push the boundaries of traditional disciplines requiring interdisciplinary collaborations, the mastery of new technologies, and intensive research to unearth new solutions to practical and aesthetic problems. Join  The Drexel University Westphal College of Media Arts & Design for a symposium that examines the process of change and design through  presentations by  IBM, Cityhealth in Brooklyn, and Healthify in New York, and Ballinger, discussions, and poster presentations at the Westphal College’s award winning facility The URBN Center and The URBN Center Annex.
To register for all or part of the symposium please visit our Eventbrite page:
Introduction: Lucy Kerman, Senior Vice Provost Drexel University & David Jones, Commissioner DBHIDS

AI for fashion: Data is the new black
Fashion designers and fashion houses usually start conceptualizing and designing products for the new season six months to one year prior to the actual selling season–though in recent times this has been drastically reduced with the emergence of fast-fashion retailers. That’s why for most apparel retailers, and the fashion industry in general, knowing the trends customers would like to wear next season is extremely important. This talk will describe how modern AI based tools  which can understand fashion images and articles can be used to provide a more data-driven approach for trend analysis and forecasting.  Dr. Raykar will also describe some of our recent collaborations with various fashion designers.

Computational Creativity:  AI for Flavor and Fragrance Design
It takes 10 years to fully train a flavorist or master perfumer, through education and apprenticeship. Over their careers, each designer will produce 10s of thousands of formulas as trails, many with sensory results.  We’ve created a system that, like a human apprentice, learns from the work of the masters.   Unlike a human apprentice, the system can learn from 100s of thous

Home: Affordable Housing + Cooperative Living Symposium
Following the model of Creative Reaction Lab’s Equity-Centered Community Design Field Guide, Writers Room and Drexel Smart House are embarking on a year-long design process for a writers house—a place that would provide not just room for public programming but a cooperative living home for Drexel students and community residents. The goal is to catalyze other intergenerational houses nearby, creating a network of homeowners and student tenants whose shared interest in writing/storytelling forms the foundation for meaningful cohabitation.
Join us as we begin with the history of development in the Mantua and Powelton neighborhoods as told by our neighbors: a conversation with the Mantua Civic Association, Mount Vernon Manor, People’s Emergency Center, Powelton Village Civic Association, and the Department of History
This event is the first in a series of three public talks + guided writing workshops. (Coffee + lunch provided.) Free, registration required.
